Three suggestions made for future of landfill By Keri Sculland

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) and property owner Andrea Weissenborn both presented to town council on June 18 regarding the current state of the Golden Landfill. Last year, the CSRD received a letter from the Ministry of Environment (MoE) stating that a number of requirements were out of compliance for the operations there. In addition to design and performance requirements, some of these included unreported leachate surfacing from the landfill property, uncontrolled vectors and litter, wildlife attractants, and more. The CSRD has stated it is making changes to comply with the MoE requirements since then, and will provide notification of any future emergencies to the MoE. In addition to the environmental impacts, neighbouring property owner Andrea Weissenborn has an extra list of complaints against

the CSRD for excessive litter on her property as a direct result from landfill operations, and concerns about groundwater contamination in neighbouring areas. The CSRD presented a report to Town of Golden council outlining the groundwater well testing that was completed, and other operations at the landfill. Town council was advised that some changes might need to be made to the landfill in the coming years, which could potentially include rezoning residential properties in the area, closing the landfill, or creating a transfer station if possible. All of the options would need to be examined carefully, and will begin with well monitoring over the next couple of years. CSRD hydrological assessments were completed at the wells, including the newest well that was drilled this year. It will use these results to determine if another well should be drilled closer to the Town of Golden to monitor possible con-

tamination. The CSRD did discover high levels of chloride and nitrate in one of the Town’s wells, which Western Water hydrologist and the environmental consultant for monitoring systems Bryer Manwell said is likely caused by another source. This spring, the Weissenborn family requested that the CSRD would not continue with its clean up of litter on their property. Instead, they hired a contractor, who discovered that the litter was buried beneath the surface of the soil, and hauled out thousands of pounds of garbage from the property. “There’s layers of litter into the soil. A lot of these pieces of litter are plastic and recyclable,” Weissenborn said. “The crews found these owl pellets, and these pellets have plastic in them… It’s a reflection of what’s going into the ecosystem.” CSRD environmental health services team leader Ben Van Nostrand says that one of the improvements the landfill completed this year was

the installation of a golf-style netting, he says will help keep the litter contained. “We have been trying to keep the litter on our side of the fence,” he added. In the spring of this year, there hasn’t been any offsite migration of surface water, explained Manwell. The most recent well was drilled down around 500 feet, and helps the CSRD assess the groundwater flow direction, determining where any contamination would migrate. One of the stronger suggestions from the CSRD to the Town of Golden is to create a 500-metre buffer between the landfill and sensitive land uses. Within that zone includes residential areas like Pine and Granite Drives, and could include future residential neighbourhoods. “The reason I’m making that recommendation is so there’s no further development,” Manwell said. “We don’t want to create further issues of people being disturbed by landfill

activity.” Manwell says the best thing to do for now is monitor the existing wells, and make a decision about where would be the best location to drill offsite to determine where the groundwater migrates from the landfill. “My suggestion is we continue to monitor at all of these locations for a two-year time prior to establishing a location to monitor offsite,” she said. “If we do establish that offiste leachate is occuring, then there should be consideration to close the site or implement leachate collection and on-site management.” Offiste leachate could also instigate a more aggressive approach to close the existing phase of the landfill and install an engineered phase that would minimize leachate. The CSRD hosted at meeting at the Golden Civic Centre on Tuesday, June 24 to discuss the landfill. More information will be available next week.

Community invited to learn more on invasive weeds Submitted

in their natural habitats, these invasive plants are highly adaptable and difficult to control. Golden’s Community Invasive Plant Program aims at decreasing invasive plant infestations while increasing public awareness about these invaders within the Town of Golden. Removal is done through non-toxic methods like hand-pulling the plants in high-priority areas. The program also offers free invasive plant inventories to private landowners on their land, it educates the public about the Town of Golden’s pesticide bylaw, coordinates community weed pull events, and pro-

As the summer season begins, so does Golden’s Community Invasive Plant Program. This seasonal program was initiated 10 years ago through Wildsight Golden with support from the Town of Golden as a means of removing invasive plants in the community. Invasive plants (terrestrial and aquatic), are a major threat to biodiversity worldwide. Invasive plants out-compete local Indigenous plants and agricultural crops for water, nutrients, and light. Without the insect predators and plant pathogens that kept them in check

vides expertise on invasive plant identification and removal to the public at the local farmer’s markets. Are you interested in getting involved? Wildsight Golden has two community weed pull events scheduled for this June and July and are accepting participants. Volunteers will leave with a full belly from a free lunch and refreshments, as well as a deeper knowledge in identifying some of Golden’s most prevalent invasive plants. Wildsight Golden invites the community in its effort to control the spread of invasive plants in the area to help protect the ripar-

ian areas – as well as the many native plants and that animals call these areas home. The first community weed pull event will run the morning of Saturday June 29 from 9 to 11:30 a.m., pulling invasive plants along the Kicking Horse River. The meeting location is at Spirit Square by the pedestrian bridge. If you do plan to attend this family friendly event, please contact the community invasive plant coordinator to RVSP, Tesia Hackett at wildsightweedprogram@ gmail.com or call 250344-5530.

Project restores marsh bird habitats at Reflection Lake

Thursday, June 27, 2019 Page A3

Wildlife biologist Rachel Darvill presented the Reflection Lake Restoration Project to town council on June 18. Keri Sculland/STar PhoTo

By Keri Sculland

Cattail in Reflection Lake have been growing rapidly, and are taking over natural birding habitats. These are some of the reasons why Goldeneye Ecological Services biologist Rachel Darvill has asked for the Town of Golden council’s support in the upcoming Reflection Lake Restoration Project, which will involve experimental cattail manipulation to try to reduce the number of the marshy plants. “There has been a notable increase in the amount of cattail present,” Darvill said to council. “Essentially, you have a cattail monoculture that has been created here.” The experimental cattail management involves creating a liner in Reflection Lake to prevent the growth of the cattail, which is similar to pond liners used in the Okanagan to combat the

yellow flag iris. Dr. Catherine Tarasoff, from Thompson Rivers University’s Department of Natural Resource Science, developed the low-cost environmentally friendly method of getting rid of the ornamental yellow flag iris from Vaseux Lake, near Oliver, B.C. Restoration efforts would begin this year, likely starting in October, when the water levels are lower. The cattail will be removed before a mat is put down for one year to prevent them from regrowing, and edging is added to hopefully kill the rhizomes. Darvill plans to deliver the removed cattail to the Akisqnuk First Nation in Windermere to be used for traditional cultural purposes like basket weaving. “Birds won’t use this type of habitat, it is just too dense,” Darvill said, adding that the area is important for marsh bird breeding.

“There’s not really anywhere for birds to forage and move around.” According to the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program, the Reflection Lake Restoration Progect will take three years to return the lake to the hemimarsh conditions to increase bird breeding habitats. Hemi marshes are a type of wetland typically found in deeper water with emergent vegetation and submersed plant life. The best bird breeding habitats are found in wetland areas with equal parts open water and vegetative cover. This project will benefit birds in the area such as the eared grebe, sora, Virginia rail, piedbilled grebe, wood duck, hooded merganser, and more. The Reflection Lake Restoration Project is supported by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, the Fish and Wildlife Compensa-

tion Program, and the The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development. Darvill brought the Reflection Lake Resoration

Project presentation to the Town of Golden council to seek their support and educate them about the project, since the lake is close to the municipality.

First Nations included in Columbia River Treaty talks By Trevor Crawley Black Press

Delegates from Canada, including local Indigenous observers, wrapped up the seventh round of negotiations on the Columbia River Treaty in the United States last week. Canadian representatives met with American negotiators in Washington D.C. and are set to meet for another round of talks in Cranbrook in September, according to a provincial government press release. Katrine Conroy, the minister responsible for the Columbia River Treaty and MLA for Kootenay-West, issued a statement along with joint statements from local Indigenous nations. “This round of negotiations marked a historic moment as representatives of Columbia Basin Indigenous Nations were present as observers for the first time,” said Conroy. “Representatives of the Ktunaxa, Syilx/Okanagan, and Secwepemc Nations had already been collaborating with the governments of British Columbia and Canada on negotiation positions and strategies; but this week, they were present in the negotiating room and participated in breakout discussions with Canada and B.C. during negotiations. “This is a very significant step forward – not just in terms of the Columbia River Treaty, but also in supporting our government’s commitment to reconciliation and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. “During the latest round of negotiations, the American and Canadian delegations took stock of progress of negotiations since the Columbia The Mica Dam is located on the Columbia River near Revelstoke, and controls water levels in Kinbasket Lake near River Treaty modernization process began in May Golden.

Nations also issued a joint statement following the latest round of talks on the treaty. The federal government announced Indigenous inclusion in the negotiation process two months ago after an outcry from local First Nations advocates. “While a great deal of work remains to be done, we are very pleased with what we have observed and participated in to date,” reads the statement. “This precedent-setting role as observers builds on and enhances our important work with Canada and B.C. over the last two years. We are confident that we can continue to contribute positively to these negotiations and help realize the First Nations’ goals for meaningful outcomes from these negotiations that are of critical importance to our nations and homelands.” The Columbia River Treaty is a water management agreement signed between Canada and the U.S. in 1964. In exchange for providing flood control and downstream power benefits, Canada agreed to build three dams, while the U.S. agreed to build one. While the power generation provides for roughly half of the potential power generation in B.C., the construction of the dams flooded 110,000 hectares of Canadian ecosystems and displaced more than 2,000 residents, heavily impacting First Nations communities and traditional territories. The treaty has been criticized for failing to adequately consult with First Nations and other stakeholders when it was first negotiated. Under the agreement, the U.S. paid Canada $64 million for 60 years of flood control and power generation benefits. The treaty has no end date, but either country can unilaterally terminate the deal by 2024, provided there is a 10-year notice.

Women’s centre honours volunteer Golden Star Staff

SAR called to rescue paragliders in incident near top of Mount 7 Golden Star Staff

Golden and District Search and Rescue On Tuesday, June 18, Golden and District Search and Rescue (GADSAR) was tasked to respond to a paragliding incident just below the Mount 7 launch. Three search and rescue technicians landed at the launch with Alpine Helicopters and walked down to the patients. The patients were stabilized, packaged, and flown out in two flights to be treated for their injuries. GADSAR also participated in a cooperative training with Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH) at the Bugaboo Lodge last weekend. GADSAR teamed

up with CMH Heli for some Class D Fixed Line training at the Bugaboos Lodge. With popularity of Via Ferrata courses increasing, this was extremely beneficial practice for evacuating an injured climber off the course. Golden-Field RCMP The Golden-Field RCMP receive 88 new files over the past week, including 18 traffic complaints, nine collisions, six abandoned 911 calls, and five disturbances. On June 19, just after 4 p.m., the Golden-Field RCMP responded to a two-vehicle collision on the Trans-Canada Highway near Hart-

ley Road, west of Golden. “The cause of the collision is still under investigation, however, at this time it is believed that a White pickup truck was passing, in the oncoming lane, when it collided head-on with a blue Toyota,” says Cst. Spencer Lainchbury with the Golden-Field RCMP. Four passengers from the blue Toyota were transported to hospital with minor injuries, while the driver of the white pickup truck was airlifted to Kamloops with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The Golden-Field RCMP and Canadian Pacific Police Service are investigating a number of thefts from construc-

tion sites near Field sometime between June 15 and 17. Police were first advised on June 16 that a vehicle, which was later confirmed to be stolen, had been left abandoned on CP Rail property. Upon further investigation it was determined that a generator and power tools had also been stolen out of a temporary structure located at the site. The following day, police received a separate report that a construction trailer had been broken into at Hoodoo Creek and several pieces of surveying equipment had been stolen. At this time, RCMP believe the two thefts are related, and are looking to speak with anyone who may have seen

anything suspicious in the area, says Lainchbury. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Golden-Field RCMP at 250-344-2221, CP Police Service at 1-800-716-9132, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Golden Fire Rescue This week, Golden Fire Rescue responded to several calls to assist the BC Ambulance Service, including calls for cardiac distress, shortness of breath, an overdose, and another assist. Golden Fire Rescue has been working on many areas of training over the past few weeks including driver training, pumps and pumping, and medical response.

Several members have recently received updated certification from training session at the Salmon Arm training centre. Once again, the public will see a lot of activity around the training grounds as Golden Fire Rescue pours concrete pads and finishes up building propane props. Valley Blacktop Ltd. will be paving the driveway into the training grounds next week. Stay tuned to Golden Fire Rescue’s Facebook page for FireSmart tips, wildfire news, and emergency notifications.

Fraudulent Compliance Markings I am thinking about upgrading the sealed beams on a vintage car to LED headlights. The LED headlights I’m considering are marked “DOT SAE” on the front. Does that mean that they are legal on roadways in B.C.? This is a tough question for someone without special knowledge to answer. I looked carefully at the picture of the light on the web site. Not only did it say DOT and SAE on the lens, it also had the European E marking. I drew on the expertise of Dan Stern, a vehicle lighting expert and Editor in Chief of Driving Vision News. Did this headlight meet standards? His response was No, and it’s not a headlamp, it’s a headlite-shaped trinket, one of a mountain of them. It’s a pathetic knockoff of legitimate headlamps and has fraudulent partial markings specifically designed to falsely assure buyers who cannot reasonably be expected to spot the difference. Unless you have a source that you can trust for proper advice, sometimes it is safer to keep the equipment that your vehicle came with from the factory.

Getting ‘hyperlocal’

In Golden, we have businesses that offer a multitude of services. There are groceries, clothing, gifts, nutrition, printing, alterations, restaurants, comic stores, book stores, movie rentals, and more. Pretty much anything you want, there’s a business for it here in Golden. It’s interesting to take a small inventory every now and then and realize how great we have it in our community. Sure, sometimes you might not be able to find exactly what you’re looking for, but we have some amazing people here that will do their best to help you get what you Golden Star Editor want, find an alternative, or special order it for you. Here at the Golden Star, we offer a service as well. We work hard every day to provide the community with factual information that is educational and purposeful. We carefully craft articles that everyone will find interesting, and offer space for businesses to advertise. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to do this 52 times a year, adding in special supplements like the special grad paper (out next week), Remembrance Day sections, the Golden Wedding Magazine, and the Dining Guide. We take all of these projects on as extra work because we know you will love it, and you will continue to support us. When we support other businesses in town, we are eating their meals, enjoying beverages, catching an evening movie, ordering in our favourite books and comics, renting new releases, and buying new shoes and shirts. Supporting the newspaper includes buying annual subscriptions (which are super affordable) and taking out ads. People sometimes worry when the paper doesn’t carry the same physical weight as it once did. There used to be more pages, and it came in a larger format. Countless times I have heard people say they are worried the newspaper won’t last forever. Well, I’ve already listed a couple ways we can all make sure we continue to have the same great and informative service in town. Aside from that, fear not. The newspaper in Golden is doing pretty well. After the mass cuts in the industry nearly 10 years ago, news transformed into something really interesting. The industry movers and shakers realized that there are already enough outlets for people to receive their provincial, national, and world news. That’s when the light bulb went on. Community. Without it, we have nothing. So, the news industry hacked a bunch of larger papers to save what mattered most to people: the community news. This is why we focus on hyper-local activity. It’s what you want, and what we’re happy to provide. Each week, we enjoy supporting all of these hyper-local businesses, just like you support ours. Thanks for being there for us and for each other, Golden. If you ever feel like writing a letter, buying a subscription, or getting the word out about your personal and business announcements, feel free to come by and say “hi,” or give us a call at 250-344-5251.

Mbira Renaissance performs party-hearty blend Golden Star Staff

Mbira Renaissance played the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival in 2018, and is coming to perform at Summer Kicks in Spirit Square in Golden on Wednesday, July 3 at 7 p.m. Mbira Renaissance will kick off the evening, and local band The Pickups will play in between sets. Edmonton-based Mbira Renaissance plays a mix of Afro-fusion, reggae, jazz, and rock, and is sure to get everyone up on their feet, dancing to the eclectic and catchy sounds of the mbira instrument, paired with the band’s full-bodied presence. facebook PhoTo

Mbira Renaissance is a Zimbabwe-inspired blend of Afro-fusion, reggae, jazz, and rock, coming to Summer Kicks on Wednesday, July 3. Everyone attending the Summer Kicks in Spirit Square will be up and dancing to this party-hearty band’s unique sounds. With seven members, Mbira Renaissance hails from Edmonton, Alta. Driven by the beguiling tones of the mbira – a kalimba-style instrument featuring a wooden board fitted with approximately two dozen metal tines plucked with the thumbs – Mbira Renaissance perform rich polyrhythms of traditional Zimbabwean music.

Town of Golden tips for water conservation

Tip # 1

Aerate! Lawns can become compacted over time. Aerating removes cores of soil and turf from the lawn, allowing water, nutrients and oxygen to penetrate the soil.

Kicking Horse Culture executive director Bill Usher describes the mbira instrument as a “thumb piano,” because it is played with the thumbs and one finger. The mbira is traditionally played in a big band.

“It’s dance music,” he said. “I’m looking forward to seeing them.” Mbira Renaissance takes up the stage at 7 p.m., and will be accompanied by local band The Pickups as the half time performers. The entire show

should have everyone up on their feet dancing, enjoying the musical talent from Mbira Renaissance and the four-part harmonies by The Pickups, Usher said. The music starts in Spirit Square at 7 p.m.

Youngest Golden Two-Four team enjoys race

By Keri Sculland

The youngest team in the Golden Two-Four this year was made up of four boys, with a combined age of 60 years. Ben Gadd (17), Iain Frazer (now 15), Ethan Allenbach, and Odin Sinclair (both 14) teamed up to compete in their first Golden Two-Four, an all day and all night trail riding mountain bike race here in Golden. Over the course of 24 hours of nearly nonstop biking, the young athletes barely had time to sleep

more than an hour at a time. The lack of sleep provided an interesting challenge, but they were also faced with riding terrain lit by mobile lamps along the way, and a few bumps here and there. In the middle of the night, it is easy to lose track of what time it is, Gadd said. Gadd kicked off the first lap for the team. Just after he started out down the trail, he crashed, busting his brakes and dropper post. He wasn’t able to finish the lap before getting some repairs done, which set

the boys back in time. Despite a few hiccups along the way, the team still came in first place in their age category. The race is split up according to age category, and these athletes on the Derailed team were the only ones that young to compete. Participating in the race came as a suggestion from one of their high school teachers, Ron Ainsley. The four young athletes began to train for the event a few months before it was set to take place, and

spent their time riding the trails in and around the Mountain Shadows area. “This was our first time, so it’s really a learning experience,” Gadd said. “Barring mechanical problems, next year will go a lot better.” Staff from Derailed attended to race to watch the team compete, and were on hand to help with bike repairs when they were necessary. Not long after their first run, Gadd experienced three flat tires in one lap, so it was good to have a team

of mechanics around to help out. Next year, Allenbach plans on being the technician for the team. As an employee at Derailed, he is getting a lot of experience repairing bike problems, and will be a huge asset to the team. While the team was working hard to do their best on the trails, they were also celebrating Frazer’s birthday. He turned 15 on the day of the race, and was happy to spend the day with his friends doing what he loves.

ASTROGRAPH by Eugenia Last Time is on your side. Observe what others are doing to maintain the upper hand. How you position yourself will determine whether you end up being controlled or calling the shots. There is plenty of time for a change, so wait for the perfect moment to strike. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Offer suggestions but don’t take charge, or you will end up doing all the work while someone else takes the credit. Make it clear what you want, and don’t undervalue your skills. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Don’t be too quick to get involved in an idea that sounds lucrative but risky. Put your energy toward a practical deal or a lifestyle change that will bring longterm benefits. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Spend time with someone who enjoys the same things you do. Whether at work or play, you’ll accomplish far more by surrounding yourself with positive, like-minded people. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Keep the momentum going until you reach your goal. Refuse to let someone’s negativity or criticism cause you to give up. Follow your intuition, and trust and believe in yourself. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Take care of small but essential details. If someone needs help, offer it without being judgmental. Anger won’t help you solve a problem, while understanding and patience will. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Spend time with someone you enjoy being around. An adventure will take your mind off some of the tedious jobs that have been weighing you down. Make plans with a loved one. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Nothing will go according to plan. Oversee everything that someone else is handling. If you look out for your interests, you will save money and time. An emotional matter will require patience. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Participate in something that sounds like fun. Getting out with friends or reconnecting with someone from your past will help you put your life and goals in perspective. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - With a little effort, you can tie up loose ends and feel good about what you’ve accomplished. Consider getting rid of old items and possessions that you no longer use. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - Review your life. A robust set of ethics and morals will see you through any dilemma you face. Change can be useful if you take your time and think matters through. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Evaluate your eating and exercise habits, and make adjustments. Check out organizations in your community that can help you achieve your goals. Feeling good will improve your attitude and personal life. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Make a subtle change. Research the possibilities and consider what you can afford. Don’t buy into a scam. Good results come with hard work and discipline.

Physical, emotional, informational birth services By Keri Sculland

Maicah Habana offers a unique service that helps empower families while they bring their children into the world. The birth doula owns and operates Apired Mama Birth Services, providing physical, emotional, informational, and spiritual support throughout pregnancy, labour, birth, and portpartum. Based on individual needs, she is able to prepare mothers and their loved ones as they go through pregnancy and child birth. Habana was inspired to help mothers through their journey after she met a doula for the birth of her now five-year-old. She felt that having a doula by her side helped put her mind at ease, and informed her about all of the changes that were going to happen to her physically and spiritually during pregnancy and birth. After the birth of her own child, Habana had many conversations with friends, family, and parenting

groups. She kept hearing that mothers and parents didn’t feel supported, and generally had bad experiences during their childbirth. “I just wanted to assist other families who needed support,” Habana said, adding that she first started out with assisting young mothers, single mothers, and low income families. After training in Red Deer and working as a doula there, she considered the move to Golden for similar reasons so many other young people move here. With an interest in outdoor activities, she began her research to see if she could offer her doula services in town. What she found out convinced her to make the move. There are around 100 pregnancies in Golden annually, and the doula who lived here previously had recently moved. She contacted the hospital, and had discussions with a few nurses, who helped her realize there was a high interest in doula services.

So far, she has assisted two mothers with their childbirth, and expects there will be many more to come. “You’re helping families in a very vulnerable time in their lives,” she said. “Having them more educated makes them feel more supported.” From the beginning, Habana meets with the families to see if they will all be a good fit. Then, depending on the services they want, she will visit with them during pregnancy, help them understand the childbirth process, and see what they envision for their big day. She can offer labour support, birth support, postpartum visits, and many spiritual supports. Overall, Habana wants women and their loved ones to have the most supportive birth in the way they want it. To find out more about what she does, visit www.facebook. com/aspiredmama, e-mail aspired- Doula Maicah Habana is Apired Mama Birth Services, a new service to town supporting mama@gmail.com, or give her a women and their loved ones through pregnancy and childbirth. call at 403-352-5206.
